4.43/5  rDev +7.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours cloudy orange with a real nice white one finger head. A little dash of lacing in there with some decent retention

S: There the sour for sure. The funky aged vinegar with some grassy notes and some grapefruit like tartness. making my mouth salivate.

T: Its not the sourest beer but my mouth gets a bomb of tartness which i want. has a lot of i guess maybe the chardonnay grassy character with a pronounced brett sour. Lots of tannins are overpowering the port barrel which is trying to poke its head out. has a lemon citrus taste after a few sips and a green grape presence

M: Carbonation is really done well with this one. my mouth gets really dried out which is expected so my palate is working hard.

D: I really dont get any alcohol in this, its pretty much just sour. I know there are beers that are more sour but I will have to say its got a great punch. Each sip I keep getting some new flavors so its fun to try to pick out something new. I think it might be a little more sour than the sui generis but a little more fruity. I cant choose which is better so thats a good thing in my book.

Thanks to GRG1313 for gifting me this one.

Bottled 5/6/10.

Pours a murky dark orange with a foamy tan head that settles to wisps film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with grain, wine, wood, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet and sour grain and fruit flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer that is super sour and tasty.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Beer is amber wtih a thin white head, no lacing, no retention.

Aroma is all wine with a little lactic sourness, a little succinic sharpness, and some oak...actually a lot of oak.

Beer is sort of like a sour wine, there are several in this series that just end up tasting like spoiled wine, this is one of them. I don't like, not a repeat.
